Ireland is the perfect destination for any team. We use Dublin and Galway as bases to explore all Ireland has to offer, as these two cities offer the best local teams for your games as well as great history to explore. From bizarre lunar landscapes and the mighty Atlantic, to labyrinthine caves and crystal clear waterways, Ireland’s breathtaking beauty is ripe for discovery. The Emerald Isle offers a warmth of welcome as the Irish are well-known for their fun-loving and natural ability to make all visitors feel at ease.

Dublin has it all, in the city you can see great sights such as Trinity College, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Guinness Storehouse.

“Ireland is such a beautiful country and incredibly friendly people as well. We could not have asked for a better pre-season trip for the team to bond, play and sightsee/shop. Thanks to Excel International Sports for helping arrange our trip and providing excellent, team-oriented planning, execution and advice. From the people at the office to the people with us on the trip (bus drivers and tour manager), we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and thank you very much!”
– Michael Cannon, Head Coach, Truman University Women’s Soccer
